The City of White Plains Signs on to Participate in County's New Food Scrap Recycling Initiative

Compost it Food Recycling Program Opens February 4 2021

White Plains Mayor Tom Roach said: "White Plains is excited to participate in this new County program. The City has encouraged its residents to compost on their own property as a means of reducing their carbon footprint, but this new program allows us to expand that opportunity to residents who do not have their own yards as well as to those who are interested in this new recycling option but do not have use for the compost. In addition to providing an important environmental benefit, the Food Scrap Recycling program is also a great example of shared services between governments, which is good for our taxpayers.

 White Plains has been working on several fronts to reduce its carbon footprint. We are getting ready to install solar on city buildings and facilities, we offer 28 electric vehicle charging stations in public garages and lots throughout the city, textile and shoe recycling, we've phased out the use of the dirtiest fuel oils, and more (see Go Green White Plains). I am pleased to be able to add the Food Scrap Recycling program to this list and thank the County Executive for this opportunity."

The City of White Plains is excited to participate in this food scrap recycling program. 
Here are some important things for White Plains residents to know:

1. Participation is free and easy.

2. Residents can drop off food scraps at the Gedney Recycling Yard, 87 Gedney Way, Monday through Saturday, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm and Sunday, 8:00 am - 12:00 pm. 

3. Accepted Food Scraps include: grains, pasta, dairy, fruit, veggies, stems, peels, meat, bones, egg shells, coffee grounds & filters, tea bags, napkins, BPI-certified compostable bags.

4. The Gedney Recycling Yard is ready to accept food scraps starting tomorrow, Thursday, February 4, 2021.
